Lovely property and caring homeowners

  • 5 of 5

The Deck House is a winner -- plain and simple. My family and I have spent one week per summer on the Vineyard for the past decade. We have stayed in lots of nice homes, but we have never rented the same one twice. I just might be ready to commit to a long-term relationship after a week at the Deck House. We stayed there during the last week of August 2017, when the weather on the Vineyard is great, and the crowds have thinned just a bit. We found the Deck House to be very clean, well-appointed and conveniently located. The neighborhood is peaceful; it has dirt roads, but there are no scary potholes. The house has the interior amenities that many vacationers look for: king-sized bed in the master bedroom (linens included for the king), central A/C, good wifi, a big smart TV, comfortable living room furniture, newer washer and dryer, and a well-equipped kitchen. It also has fantastic outdoor amenities, including a phenomenal outdoor shower (big enough for the whole family, though that would be weird), 360-degree deck with plenty of seating, a large newer gas grill, two hammocks, a swing nestled among the trees, and attractive landscaping. You will be in good hands with the home owners of this property; they really seem to care about their renters. The renters' binder is chock full of good information about the house and the island, and will even give you a chuckle. All in all, this vacation was another great experience on MV, thanks in no small measure to the folks behind the scenes at the Deck House.

Summer Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Summer Bliss! For two glorious weeks in July my family and friends enjoyed the peaceful retreat of the Deckhouse and all of its delightful amenities! We particularly enjoyed the spacious wrap-around deck which provided us both sun and shade, morning coffee/breakfast, evening meals of fresh fish on the grill, lobster dinners, corn hole tournaments, quiet reading and conversation on the comfy deck furniture, evening cocktails under the stars and solar lighting, summer flowers blooming everywhere, generous seating, child’s table/chairs/umbrella, and a lovely manicured lawn with two hammocks and bountiful hydrangeas! The highlight was the amazing private outdoor shower complete with two rainfall shower heads, bench and flower tendrils poking through the slats! Luxurious after a hot day at the beach!

Now to the inside…. very clean, ample room for eight adults and a three year old, comfy beds, two full indoor bathrooms with showers, kitchen with large table and seating for six or more, all the kitchen utensils you would ever need, large comfy sectional sofa, cable TV and excellent internet access, cheerful and tasteful décor, sunlit rooms, air-conditioning, and a large washer and dryer (and outdoor clothesline). Also available for use were beach chairs and beach towels!

The house location is only fifteen minutes from Edgartown, OB, and Vineyard Haven and most of the beaches. Moshup beach and Menemsha are up island but so worth the beautiful drive!

Be sure to visit the Artisans Fair and Farmer’s Market in West Tisbury, Chilmark Pottery, Rainy Day, LeRoux, Morning Glory Farm and Bunch of Grapes . Check out a Vineyard Sound concert. Our favorite restaurants are the Red Cat, Beach Restaurant, Larsen’s Fish Market, Chesca’s, The Port Hunter, Nancy’s, The Bite, State Road restaurant, The Dunes, Lookout Tavern, Artcliff, and The Black Dog for breakfast.

The Deckhouse owners Don and Laura are wonderful! They welcomed us with Deckhouse t-shirts for the family! They are easy with which to communicate and work hard to make their renter’s stay a pleasant one! They returned our security deposit promptly. Deborah Eggars, the Deckhouse rental agent, was a pleasure to work with, communicated promptly and made the rental process go smoothly.

We have been vacationing on the island every summer for over thirty years. The Deckhouse is one of our top favorite rentals and we look forward to returning! Thank you Don and Laura!

Perfect Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

The deckhouse was the perfect place for our annual MV vacation with friends and family. The home has plenty of space to spreadout and relax. The wrap around deck is perfect for reading, relaxing, and dining. The kids enjoyed the yard space and quiet street. The ability to spend time at MV's best beach (Lambert's Cove) put the cherry on top. Thank you so much!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! The house is clean, comfortable, and convenient. We spent 3 nights and it felt like home. Wish I could've stayed longer. The outdoor shower is a must. Martha's Vineyard is a great place to vacation and this is the perfect place to stay.

Best Rental EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from a week at this absolutely gorgeous home with every amenity you can think of!! The house was spotless when we arrive. The owners could not be more thoughtful - fresh flower on the table, Deckhouse tee shirts for the family - including our 7 month old!! Such a special touch. The deck is enormous and the kids rode the scooters around the deck - so safe!! The yard is to die for - everywhere you look there is a new surprise!! Hammocks, chairs benches, blueberry bushes and on. Our family of 8 had the best vacation every!! W.Tisbury is the perfect town, easy to get everywhere and the beach is incredible. Thank you so much for sharing your home! It is awesome!!!

Loved the Deckhouse!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! I stayed the week with my three children, daughter in law and two small grandchildren. It was the perfect place for the family. Has everything you need. The yard is enchanting. Still dreaming of relaxing in the hammock in the backyard and the outdoor shower which is to die for! Great location as well.... away from it all but not too far from anywhere you want to go on the island.
